Lovely comfort food dish, I expected it to stick to the lasagna dish that I made it in, but it didn't, I upped the quantities slightly to feed 5 and it worked a treat. Great way to help with the egg glut from my hens and use my lovely home grown potatoes.

Made this tonight and it was lovely. So easy and filling. Everyone in the family enjoyed it and have already asked for it to be made again. Highly recommend it.

Made pretty much to the recipe, turned out lovely. Ideal comfort food. Toddler friendly (& even whizzed it up for 11mnth son) and both enjoyed. I made it ahead and microwaved it when required & texture was still good. Make again? Yes!

Do you parboil the new potatoes first?

goodfoodteam's picture

You need to cook the potatoes as stated in step 1, thanks.

Can this be frozen? At what stages can you freeze it, before going into the oven or after, and if before, what would you increase the cooking time by?

For best results make this fresh and do not freeze.
